obama, right? look what they're doing in governance. they're having the rich pay less, and they're having the poor pay more. this is not what they're marketing to the nation, but this is what they're doing when they're handed the reins of government. economist paul krugman wrote about this deja news. taking from ordinary families and giving to the rich. even as republicans look for a way to sound more sympathetic and less extreme, republican policies are taking another sharp right turn. why is this happening? in particular, why is this happening now, just after an election and which the republican party paid a price for its anti-populist stand? good question. and it's the distance between what the beltway writes down when the republicans talk about themselves versus what republicans actually do where they are in charge. it's a very good question. paul krugman himself is here for the interview, straight ahead. direct rates side by side to find you a great deal, even if it's not with us.

is that mr. obama's proposal would extent family immigration rights. >> same-sex partners from other countries should not be faced with the painful choice between staying with the person they love and staying in a country they love. >> as long as the senate plan stays close to the president's principles, he is happy to led congress take the lead. they don't think they can sell a plan to the latino community that mr. obama doesn't report. some republicans are concerned if he is tied too closely to the plan they can't sell it to other republicans. >> bret: wendell goler live in las vegas. thank you. much more on this with the panel. senator john kerry has been confirmed as the next secretary of state. senators easily approved the nomination this afternoon, following the endorsement by the foreign relations committee kerry used to lead. the vote was # 4 in favor -- # 4 in favor, three against and up with present. massachusetts democratic governor dvlll patrick is expected to name interim replacement senator tomorrow. outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton will be greta van susteren
it to that, they have leverage. >> bret: a.b.? >> tucker right, we don't for sure is president obama wants a bill which ultimately will be a compromisement but he is not running for re-election and the fact that congressional democrats who have been active on this issue for years, members of the congressial hispanic congress asked him not to come out in an aggressive way and try to best the senate bipartisan group with his own bill. that's why he said today if they don't do it i will have one but he talked about his principles. that is a sipe he wants a legacy and he wants a bill. now, republicans at the same time because there is such a lack of trust are trying to win the hearts and minds of their own conservative base, by saying this isn't amnesty. we are not going to give the president a win and we don't trust him either. but they want a bill as well. i'll assume both sides want a bill because they need a bill. we can be cynical about it later. but it is in president obama's interest for a legacy and the republican party interest for winning a coalition that gives them the white house a
weeks from tomorrow. this ball will get going. it's hard to see right now whether president obama helped or hurt the effort today. you could read it either way. most people would say it's not help to fly and do campaign attack and those coming to the table with a sensible plan if you want a solution to the problem. >> andrea: the biggest problem i see is the border control. bipartisan group of eight senators agreed the border must be secured. however, president obama does not believe that citizenship is contingent upon stealing the porous borders. does this put them at odds with majority of most of america? >> eric: the senators did something wrong. they say all the things that happen after the border is secure. make sense, they like to way a path to citizenship in the 11 million. the breakdown of how they atape the goals and benefit and rights they would get. made sure the border was secure. but president obama went the opposite way saying it has to happen and has to happen now. if they not willing to vote on a package or his package soon he would force a vote. how much off base can you

on tonight. when we come right back, karl rove on immigration and 60 mince interview with president obama and secretary clinton. rove is next. >> bill: thanks for staying with us. i'm bill o'reilly in the impact segment tonight. as we discussed at the top of the program, immigration reform coming up quickly. will republicans support it? and the 60 minutes interview last night with the president and the secretary of state joining us from austin, texas, fox news analyst karl rove. let's take immigration first. what is your advice to republicans on that? >> well, i think marco rubio laid out an excellent set of principles that looks like many of them, most of them have been embodied in this bipartisan 8-member senate panel republicans ought to give it a we clear strong look as you saw from your interview with marco unionio recently it emphasizes strong border security. a guest worker program and a fair but tough resolution of the issue of the people here already illegally. >> bill: generally speaking, i had no beef with senator rubio's plan and i hope they get something together. they are ar
, and help you find the aarp medicare supplement plan that's right for you. gerri: president obama pushing his green agenda. saying climate change will be a big priority in his second term. >> we will respond to the threat of climate change knowing that the burial of to do so will betray our children and future generations. gerri: democratic lawmakers telling president obama to push forward with his green agenda through executive action. as you know, that means bypassing congress altogether. my next guest says his green energy bubble has already burst. robert bryce is a senior fellow for the manhattan institute. it's always great to have you on th show. this just drives me crazy and i'm glad you're here. congressman henry waxman and sheldon whitehouse. they are asking for the white house with these rules in place to prevent climate change. that is what they say. they want to accelerate federal investments in green energy. and they want to a -- they want to lower gas emissions by 2020. what you think? this is a crazy thing i've ever heard. >> what worries me about that letter is the idea th
of a commitment since 2005 to right now? >> well, there is no question under the obama administration more efforts have been done at the border than any other time. you just listed a whole host of them there are many more. the question is how do we use technology instead of personnel to achieve a greater border security, and how do we focus our existing resources to border crossings that are critical both for our commerce as well as our security. >> are you confident that there is going to be enough republican support to get this thing done? it has failed in the past. we really haven't had anything in over several decades. we have gone from three million. now we're up to 11. i think there is more than 11 million undocumented workers. i think that's a low number. i could be wrong on that. i mean, are you going to have enough republicans to do this? because this is really been a strong conversation in progressive circles in america. the progressives and liberals are really pushing for this. >> well, ed, look, elections have consequences. and i think our republican colleagues woke up to the new demog
a second. it was blocked by the far right. >> and the far left and unions and barack obama. >> absolutely demonized every immigrant as some kind of threat to america. >> the attack came from both flanks. and the attack also come from both flanks again. >> bill: let me be the source of light here instead of heat for once. it's a different time then, juan. we had very big border security problems then. and now the border security is a lot better. so the debate in the story can progress. i think we need immigration reform. but i do think that they have to deal with the welfare situation. because if you are going to add another 6 million people, and, believe me, when welfare gets -- when welfare, when immigration reform gets passed, that means the people in the other countries are going to be able to come here. you have a flood of new immigrants into the united states. not just the 12 million that are here, but probably another 12 to 15 that will join them. you have got to deal with this problem. i don't think either party will do it but that's where i'm coming from. >> i think your conservat
is a cream puff piece for president obama when he wants to make a point. >> i think you are absolutely right t. has -- there is a point at which it backfires for the president. it's nice to have the media on your side, i guess. but after a while, it -- even the mainstream media, if the main ndon't think they can ask you any questions, when hillary clinton said she couldn't even talk about her interest in running for president in 2016 because it was against the law -- i mean, come on, that was a great time for kroft to say, really? push just for a moment. but they don't. people will see right through that transparency. >> we put up a quote from from president obama in an interview. it said, if a republican member of congress is not punished on fox news, or by rush limbaugh for working with the democrat on a bill of common interest, then you will see more of them doing it. what is the plan? what is the reason for calling out fox news? does he want his free way? he has a mandate to do whatever he wants and he doesn't want anyone looking in or paying attention to what he is doing? >> we have to
, there are a lot of families who are worried right now. that will change significantly the calculus of the obama administration with regard to iran in the years ahead. >> how does that change the calculus? you think because it will weaken the iranian program? was this israeli operation as you put it that effective? >> very effective right now. the information, larry, again, we're going with what we have. very effective. chiefly because iran cannot now complain that israel attacked its secret nuclear weapons program, one that it isn't supposed to have. also, we know that the obama administration is in active conversation with the supreme leader right now for a grand bargain. significant detail here. the attack took place, the day before the israeli election. the day before benjamin netanyahu was returned to make -- to form a government. he is now forming a government. this is huge news in israel. all of the television stations will be going with it tomorrow, the newspapers are going with it now. >> you say -- you say the united states government is negotiating a grand bargain with iran? that is n
're about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> hi, i'm bill o'reilly. ing thanks for watching tonight. barack obama and hillary clinton, friends forever that, is the subject of this evening's talk points memo. disappointing interview last nicht i didn't learn very much. i didn't learn anything. the theme seemed to be the world is a dangerous, complicated place. >> we live in a dangerous world, people i'm proud to serve and work within our diplomatic and development personnel ranks, they know what the danger is. >> it's a dangerous world that. is part of the reason why we have to continue to get better. >> we live not only in a dangerous but a complicated world right now with many different forces at work. >> coming up we live in a world that is incredibly complicated and dangerous. now, i respect the interviewer. i don't know why he didn't ask hard questions. if you know, please tell me. you don't have to be disrespectful. all have you to say is hey, mr. president why did your secretary of state hitting -- sitting next to you not go on sunday shows to explain what
? the republican party was losing the support of hispanic citizens in his right. president obama cut over 70% of the latino vote. spoke about the immigration reform and expects to do so tomorrow during a speech in las vegas bin of bipartisan push for immigration reform. thank you for joining us congressman been my pleasure to be with you. . >> characterize this bipartisan cooperation republicans are nervous that they've already alienated that growing in powerful latino vote is that true? i think a great degree has to do with that election and the consequences of it. what i should think is we may want to also say that that election could reinforce our democratic fundamental faith. democratic values. their groups of people organized to make a message for action to their votes. that is clearly why groups of immigrants across this nation are getting a response. i'm glad to see that this demand by american citizens is being addressed. we have been here before. 2005. john mccain and several other congressmen introduced bipartisan support is a proposal and i am delighted to see john f. mccain to th
. >> cenk: all right we'll see if that means that we're going an iran or not. and obama versus fox news, tonight on "the young turks." it's go time. >> cenk: you know, one of the large issues in this campaign was immigration reform, right? well, the republicans were against it. all of a sudden when results did not go in their direction they're reconsidering their position. we got a gang of eight four republicans, four democrats who have new immigration reform. look at that. we'll go to a report from "abc news" on that. >> it's a hot-button issue coming to the forefront again immigration reform. four democrats and four republicans have unveiled a plan to tackle it. >> we can't go on forever with 11 million people living in this country in the shadows in an illegal status. >> reporter: the plan by the so-called gang of eight senators layout and address issues. president obama heads to las vegas to unveil his own immigration reform plan. he promised the reform in his 2008 but failed to deliver it in his first term. >> cenk: the reason why he failed to deliver it, of course, the republicans
citizens. >> obviously, when you look at the election last time, president obama got 71% of the latino vote. mitt romney, 27%. is john mccain right? >> no, he really isn't. he's no more right this time than he was back in, what, '87, when he and another gang tried to put together a very similar bill. he and a member of that time of it was called the mccain-kennedy bill. very similar in every respect to what i have seen so far. i must admit i haven't seen the whole thing. from what i heard about it, very similar. at any rate, it's the same rhetoric, and it's just as wrong today as it was then. the reason, i mean, this is amazing, honestly. somehow, republicans, many republicans, mccain being one of them, have been led to believe that all we have to do as republicans is soften the stance on immigration, and we will begin to erode the democrat base that exists in the hispanic community. certainly, there is nothing to prove that. honestly, nothing, not one shred of evidence. not one poll ever taken shows hispanics saying, yeah, that's it. hispanics vote for democrats for exactly the same reason
in the senate plan and what president obama laid out today. >> right. >> where okay, we can start the pathway to citizenship if this panel to consist of governors of border states down to the southwest and others down there in the southwest, we are talking about like jan brewer, rick perry, people like this, if they declare the border secure and as toure said, if they're in the mood to, they could say not secure, not secure. what in your mind is a fair standard to make a secure border? >> two things. i think we have to as you already pointed out and talked about by the other panels, find a way to basically make sure the people here are on a path to citizenship. bring families over in a controlled way. bring the families over. great idea. you control it. you don't fight it. >> okay. >> so i'm sorry to interrupt. part of declaring the border secure is having in place already the path to citizenship. is that what you're saying? >> right. i'm saying that you have to have control the fact that families want to come. deal with that right up front or they try to sneak across. you have to accept that
for obama. i think the country needs- your am i right? >> i don't think it hurts to have disagreement within the republican caucus. you know, they've talked about how much money ronald reagan raised for the heritage foundation, even when the heritage foundation was taking shots for it not being conservative enough. and ed says, you know, president reagan says, look, i need you on my right, fussing at me, so when i negotiate with tip o'neill-- >>, but if the republicans in the house are not united and i would argue on conservative principles, obama's going to win and the only way you have power if you're together. is that-- >> that's true. >> i think that you're right there. the number one issue with the american people is the out of control spending. and, you know, we took our actions with the no budget, no pay and this weekend, when i was in california with some of my colleagues, constituents, people were excited that we laid down the law and pointed out, they realized for the first time that the senate hasn't done their job and sean, they want to see us hold the senate accountable, they wa
, he agreed and said republicans must have more than an anti-obama message. let's listen to the oracle, the architect. >> i think he's right. he was talking about todd akin of missouri and richard mourdock of indiana and their terrible comments on abortion. the republican can't be in mindless opposition to president obama. it has to offer a vision of the future that is attractive and compelling for americans to associate with. >> the problems is that the vision jindal and rove are talking about hasn't changed. only their messaging has. while jindal talks a good game paul krugman pointed out yesterday jindal is proposing eliminating louisiana's incomes tax which is paid primarily by the wealthy and replace it with a sales tax designed to hit the middle class and working class. you're doing the same old hoover stuff, tax the people that get hit the hardest by economic recession and exempt the top penal who make incomes, big incomes. >> but that's not necessarily been born out in states like texas and new hampshire and elsewhere that don't have a state income tax, that do have a higher sa
much. it is 5:03 right now. >> we want to talk about the big day ahead for president obama and immigration reform as he unveil his plan. he said it is important for there to be a path for for illegal immigrants. let's check in with brianne get more on what we are anticipating. the president says that this one of his priorities of his second term. today, america will get to hear his proposal. later today in las vegas, is expected to lay out his vision for immigration reform. -- a crackdown on employers who hire undocumented -- ers jet -- workers >> we believe this will be the gets itgress finally .one comes president's plan one day after a bipartisan group each an senators on a framework to pathway to citizenship for 11 million immigrants living in the u.s. >> the issue of immigration is not simple. we have the opportunity to do it right. we will do ahink tremendous service to our country and its future. >> the president is expected to 3:00 p.m. eastern time in las vegas. many will be watching closely to out.hat he lays reporting live, brianne carter, abc 7 news. the plans f
it was that president obama gets the credit. that's what jay carney said. how does that help what we are seeing unfold right now which is a deal with republicans on capitol hill. how does this help or not? >> it does not help. it far from helps. the speech today we expect would not help either. that is why we saw that report from the congressional hispanic caucus saying don't push the republicans too hard on this. if they are coming to the table let them come in and let them be there, because the president to his own thinking -- we talked about this just yesterday. the president's own way of thinking about what motivates republicans which he says is fear of certain cable news network and fear of conservative pundits and that they only oppose it because they are afraid -- they agree with it but they are afraid to do business with him. for him to come out and take credit for this accord and then further what he is going to do today is come out and talk about more things that he wants. those are not the things that you do if you are trying to entice your opponents into deeper negotiations. if rush limbau
